CNN projection: Vermont's Christine Hallquist becomes first transgender person nominated for governor by a major party

Christine Hallquist's bid to become the country's first transgender governor will clear a historic hurdle on Tuesday.

Hallquist will be the first transgender gubernatorial nominee for a major political party, CNN projects, a breakthrough of both substantial and symbolic importance for LGBTQ Americans, in particular the trans community, which has for so long been shut out of the highest levels of elected office.

What's next: Hallquist will face Gov. Phil Scott in November. CNN projects Scott is the winner of the GOP primary.

3. I wonder if Scott would have lost if Vermont didn't have an open primary.

He beat Stern by a huge margin, so perhaps it wouldn't have mattered. But it's too bad Hallquist won't be facing Stern.

6. She seems like a good candidate from what I read on her website.

She has some good ideas. I don't live in Vermont but I have relatives in Vermont who plan to vote for her.

8. Saw her interviewed this afternoon. Impressive.

And she won on a platform of Medicare For All, 15 an hour and banning assault weapons. Would be incredible if she won. Fingers crossed.

12. With that platform it's a wonder that she didn't get endorsed by Sanders or Our Revolution. Curious!
